Let Us Gather And Give Thanks

Happy November and happy first day of The Daily Marker’s 30-Day Coloring Challenge!  I’m looking forward to playing along and also to being a goodwill ambassador for the challenge, spreading love and encouragement all month.  If you’re not familiar with the challenge, read more here and come join in the fun!

For today’s card I pulled out a new and a slightly older stamp set from Neat and Tangled.  I love that this wreath can be for any season and today I’ve used it for a Thanksgiving card.

For today’s card I used the wreath and floral images from Neat and Tangled’s Floral Frame stamp set.  I stamped the wreath onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock and stamped the individual flowers and leaves onto some scrap Neenah.  I used Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink.

I used G20, G21, G24, and G28 for the leaves.

I used a Brother ScanNCut2 to cut out the individual floral elements and set them aside.  Using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, I stamped the sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s Birch Leaf stamp set.  Then I used foam tape to adhere the die cut elements around the frame.

To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
